Schumer Attacked Who?! (Video)

( – In what many saw as an outrageous speech attacking the best interests of the United States and its ally Israel, Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer blasted Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu for defending his nation from the Islamist terror group Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

Israel has been combating Hamas in a military operation in Gaza since October 7, when the terrorists slaughtered more than 1,400 Israelis and foreigners, including 33 Americans.

In a 40-minute address on the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) criticized conservative Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, branding him as a “barrier to peace,” National Review reports.

He urged Israel to initiate a fresh election aimed at ousting the current Netanyahu-led administration due to its handling of the conflict with Hamas.

“Netanyahu has lost his way by allowing his political survival to take precedence over the best interests of Israel,” stated the Democrat Senate leader, who is the highest-ranking Jewish lawmaker in the United States.

He urged the election of a leader who could more effectively manage the threat posed by Hamas.

This call for a new Israeli leadership coincides with a period of growing dissatisfaction among Democrats, including President Joe Biden, who are troubled by the increasing civilian casualties in Gaza and Netanyahu’s rejection of a ceasefire agreement with Hamas, the report points out.

This proposed deal would involve the formation of an official Palestinian state, a prospect Netanyahu dismissed, particularly in the aftermath of the violent attack on October 7.

As Israel gears up for a military offensive in Rafah, a city in southern Gaza, Biden has issued a cautionary note against such actions, labeling them a “red line.”

Netanyahu, in response, has vowed to prevent further Hamas attacks to ensure that the events of October 7 “never happens again.”

“We’ll go there. We’re not going to leave them. You know, I have a red line. You know what the red line is? That October 7 doesn’t happen again. Never happens again,” Netanyahu told Politico earlier this week.

This statement aligns with the Israeli military’s intentions to relocate a significant number of the 1.4 million displaced Palestinians from Rafah to safer locales in anticipation of the offensive.

The relationship between Biden and Netanyahu has been notably tense, with stalled ceasefire negotiations exacerbating the strain.

Biden, while outwardly supporting Israel’s anti-Hamas operations, has expressed his frustration with Netanyahu in private discussions.
